    dizmo got a reaction from pazzoeo in Is a PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD necessary for next gen performance or is 3.0/SATA fine?   
    Yes, but probably not for a few years. IIRC Intel just recently released the API for it, so it's going to take quite a while for game devs to work it into every product.
    Plus they're not going to alienate virtually 98% of PC gamers that don't have it. Your games will run fine on a "slower" SSD for years to come.
     
    Welcome to the forum.

    dizmo reacted to GoldenLag in AMD did NOT disappoint me   
    @GabenJr did you guys note any tripping on transient sensetive PSUs that you saw using the 3080 and 3090?
     
    even if the wattage is lower, the older Vega 64 and Radeon 7 were prone to tripping such PSUs at the same claimed Board Power as the 6800 xt

    Honestly, I think it's great to have competition but I do think Nvidia's offering is more compelling to be honest. 
     
    It'll be great to have the two neck and neck for the next few years hopefully!

    dizmo reacted to aisle9 in Linus Media Group makes $19 Million per year in revenue. Explained... (Corrected)   
    It's a good try, but it's just a try. There's a lot of guesswork here, and you can't build something like this off of guesswork. You need actual numbers for things like employee salaries, for one, and you need to know the various numbers that go into the costs. I agree, Linus' last comment on this did seem something like a challenge to everyone to go figure it out, but I don't expect anyone to ever say, "Bingo!". That's just not something you do with a privately held company outside of very specific circumstances, especially when numbers like the CEO's salary are directly tied to that number.

    dizmo reacted to Ajmal Zahir in Linus Media Group makes $19 Million per year in revenue. Explained... (Corrected)   
    Just something that I used to wonder about How much large YouTubers make. Just a post based on that and Linus' video but to ask you a question?
     
    Why does it matter to you? It's just a post, if you don't like it then you can move on. It's not a bad thing to guess how much big YouTubers make consider it a big industry now. This is similar to asking the question, "How much a doctor makes?" "How much does Samsung make per year" "How much does a software engineer make a year?" "How much does a big YouTuber make a year?"

    dizmo got a reaction from Phoned_ in Why Apple Silicon is exciting even if you dislike Apple   
    Your middle point is entirely Apple based. So. I'll just ignore that one, as it kind of goes against your title.
    It's interesting, for sure, but I don't think the industry will have to match it, and it'll be interesting to see how many companies choose to code for Apple's decisions.

    dizmo reacted to Fasauceome in When will R5 5600X support come on B450?   
    some board partners have already pushed 5000 series compatibility updates, and have even taken matters into their own hands and updated X370 boards to accept 5000 series Ryzen processors.
     
    it's a very case by case basis

    Depends on the motherboard and when the manufacturer decides to push the update.

    dizmo got a reaction from Moonzy in AMD quietly removes mountain bikes from store after health risks found in Gamers Nexus review   
    Haha, while health risks is technically not wrong, it's not really what you'd say. It'd be safety concerns. Health risks would generally be used for something that can affect you by ingestion or just being around it.
     
    I think AMD should have taken this off the market as soon as they saw Steve's video. They probably don't have anyone that would test it internally (be that because they don't have anyone that rides, or the people there that do ride wouldn't have bothered), and a review like that is pretty damning. He wasn't even riding it that hard.
     
    You can't market something as a "mountain bike" and expect people not to use it as such. That's not how that works.

    dizmo got a reaction from DaRk0 in As ASUS employee warns gamers that AMD 6800XT will be in very limited supply at launch, expected to sell out within minutes.   
    This news shouldn't be surprising in the least, and anyone thinking AMD would have tons of stock at launch is either new to the space, or has their head so far into AMDs junk they won't see light for days.
     
    There's many more parts to a GPU than there is to a CPU, so it's easier to have stock issues. There's a worldwide pandemic, which can result in supply shortages, difficulty simply shipping the items, as well as drastically increased demand (which in itself is multi pronged, as it accounts for both demand from people being stuck at home, as well as the large increase in performance).
     
    Most GPU launches have had shortages of supply. In the state we're in, it really shouldn't be a shock that it's worse than usual.
     
    Why? It's not like they haven't been building supply in the meantime. They knew their launch date, it's not a surprise to them, and waiting makes absolutely no sense. Just get what you have out the door and to customers. People crying that they can't spend hundreds of their dollars on a luxury item is pathetic.
    Funny how you say Nvidia dropped the ball, yet AMD is heading in the same direction. It's simply demand outpacing supply.
    IMO it makes absolutely no sense to wait. Just sell what you have.
    At least he can cash in on that $10...
    Really, though, if he sold the card he needs for work before he had a new one in hand, he deserves what he gets. It's the only way he'll learn.
    I mean, if you're looking at higher end competitive AMD cards, it's been what...6? 7 years?
    Basically the same premise with drugs.
    Attacking the supply is rarely the answer, you have to take away the demand. There will always be supply.

    they won't, because the oither 99% care about it. 
     
    they are popular among devs, but devs are less than 1% of the consumer market. so even if Mac's are popular with them, it makes no difference to the 1% number. 
     
    like, Mac's are popular for students, designers, video editors, i could go on. basically people in every field like them.

    Really depends what you're trying to do. What FPS you're aiming for, what games, what your budget is, etc etc.
